Background

Trinetra Cement, which owns the plant, is a subsidiary of India Cements.[1]

The Business Standard reports that in 1995 Mahi Cement Limited began construction of the cement plant and then merged with Trinetra. "However, the company later faced financial difficulties and had to suspend construction of this plant. In 1998, it was classified as a sick industrial company. India Cement through its subsidiary acquired equity shares of the company and subsequently entered into a share purchase agreement with the erstwhile promoters and acquired further shares through an open offer. All of these together resulted in ICLFSL acquiring a majority stake and control of the company. Simultaneously, the abandoned cement plant at Banswara was revived," wrote T E Narasimhan in the Business Standard.[1]
